Petroleum Centre Tour

Take a trip back in time at Petroleum Centre to see what life was really like in this 1860's oil boom town.  The park naturalist will take you on a guided tour to translate the past of "the wickedest town east of the Mississippi."  You'll walk the boardwalk trail, a recreation of what the 1860's sidewalks would have been like, and learn about the businesses, homes, and people who once lived here.  There will be an optional showing of The Valley that Changed the World(approx. 20 minutes) in the Amphitheater immediately following.  Registration is required.  Register by calling 814.676.1810 or emailing ikuberry@pa.gov.
